Particle, Powder, Nano and Biomaterial Production
Liquid and gas phase processes can be used to synthesize high value materials, including, e.g. nano-materials, drug powders and microbes. In the gas phase, such synthesis process can be based on so-called gas-to-particle and droplet-to-particle methods. In the liquid phase, process can include precipitation, flocculation and fermentation. Quality of the product and efficiency in production depend on intricate coupling between the phases.
Proper design and optimization of synthesis systems leads to higher uniformity of product, more efficient use of raw materials and energy and reduced process downtime for cleaning and maintenance.
StreamWise has specialized coupled aerosol and aquasol transport and dynamics models to simulate and optimize such processes.
